CBI named Choksi, three of his companies and four employees working at those companies in a chargesheet filed at a Mumbai court on Wednesday. In a statement, CBI confirmed it had filed a second chargesheet in the PNB fraud case, dubbed the biggest fraud in India’s banking history, but did not name the accused. The fraud this week dragged PNB into a $1.98 billion fourth-quarter net loss, the worst loss ever recorded by an Indian bank.
